About me

Hello everyone!

I am a native Japanese speaker currently living in New Zealand. I am a qualified and experienced Japanese language teacher (over 15 years) and am confident in providing quality lessons you will enjoy!

I love arts, music and dance. I am a Master of Ikebana, used to play the guitar and double bass in an orchestra.

I look forward to offering enjoyable lessons!

Qualifications & Experience


- Master of Arts (Hons) (Masters), New Zealand

- Graduate Diploma of Teaching (secondary), New Zealand

- Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test Pass, Japan

- Japanese Language Education Course completed, Japan

- Bachelor of Arts (Bachelors), Japan


I have been teaching at schools (Japanese language schools in Japan, secondary and intermediate schools in New Zealand) for over 15 years.

As for NCEA , I have taught up to scholarship level with great success. I have created numerous NCEA materials.

I have also taught primary and intermediate school students, university students and adults (class, group, private) from complete beginner level to advanced level.

I have a wide variety of teaching and coaching experience including Japanese speech contests (many winners), JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) and creating online interactive language resources.

I also worked at companies and therefore can teach business Japanese. My work experience also includes interpreter/translator (International Tchaikovsky competition, medical conferences, research papers, booklets and labels of commercial products, business documents, company websites, school websites).

In addition to Japanese, I would like to teach ESOL as well. At schools in New Zealand, I have also taught ESOL and looked after international students. I would be happy to help native Japanese speakers to practise English before they actually communicate with native English speakers. Especially, if you are visiting New Zealand, I can also provide useful information on the life, culture, school and much more in this country through English lessons.

Teaching Approach

- consider each student's goals and interests.

- encouraging, well prepared, give constructive advice and suggestions, help students to increase their confidence in communicating in Japanese!
